Syfy Shifts Sharknado 2 Premiere Date; Original Sharknado Getting the RiffTrax Treatment
Syfy's new Thursday night block of "Defiance" and "Dominion," which begins in June, has had a ripple effect on a few things the network had already announced for later in the summer, such as Sharknado 2: The Second One, which received a new premiere date.
You can now expect to see the highly anticipated sequel on Wednesday, July 30th, at 9 PM PT/ET, just a little more than one year after the original Sharknado aired.
And speaking of the original, it's getting the RiffTrax Live treatment on Thursday, July 10th, and Tuesday, July 15th. You can learn more about that below.
Anthony C. Ferrante returns to direct a screenplay by Thunder Levin, who also wrote Sharknado. In Sharknado 2: The Second One, a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a "sharknado" on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, returning from the original) can save the Big Apple.
Kelly Osbourne, Judd Hirsch, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Vivica A. Fox, and Mark McGrath also appear in the Syfy Original Movie, which promises cameos by the likes of Perez Hilton, rapper Biz Markie, Salt-N-Pepa's Pepa (aka Sandra Denton), Robert Klein, and professional wrestler/Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle.
As for the RiffTrax event, here's the lowdown LIVE from Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo), and Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot) themselves. Keep your eyes on RiffTrax.com for additional info.
